Educational Programs 2015-2016
Ranger-Led Field Trips
Grand Canyon National Park provides the perfect outdoor setting to enhance classroom based learning. Each spring and fall rangers lead 2.5 and 5 hour long field trips for grades 3-12. During the programs, park rangers guide students through Grand Canyon geology, ecology, and human history. All field trips are curriculum-based and free of charge; most take place on the South Rim.
Would you like a park ranger from Grand Canyon to visit your classroom?
In January and February each year park rangers travel throughout Arizona, southern Utah, and the Las Vegas area, conducting one-hour-long educational classroom activities and school assemblies.
All programs are curriculum-based and free of charge.
Grand Canyon National Park offers state-of-the-art distance learning programs for classrooms. Programs are free. An internet connection is required.
Each year, Grand Canyon National Park offers teacher workshops for continuing education credit.
